Majestic Glory

Posted in Fiber Art, God, Jesus, Painting, Photography, Positive thinking at 1:10 am by sewhisword

God has many names throughout the Bible and after researching His many Names, one that is meaningful to me is Majestic Glory.  I recently made a small art quilt and decided to name it Majestic Glory.  This particular name can be found in the Bible in the following verse: II Peter 1:17:  

“For he received honor and glory from God the Father when the voice came to him from the Majestic Glory, saying, “This is my Son, whom I love; with him I am well pleased.” NIV

The quilt depicts a purple mountain scene with grassy areas painted with threads, embroidered french knot flowers, and beaded flowers in the foreground.  As I made the quilt, I kept being reminded of God’s Majesty and Glory.  I printed His Name – Majestic Glory – onto silk, painted it with gold fabric paint, and hand-stitched  the silk piece onto the quilt. 

This quilt was made to glorify Him.

Happy as Birds

Posted in Daily Devotional, God, Jesus, Positive thinking at 5:04 pm by sewhisword

I like to watch birds; they always seem happy.  They are also diligent and proactive.

Birds don’t get bummed out like people do, nor do they complain.  They find their food and sing Thank You songs to God in the morning and before they go to sleep at night.

It’s hard to stay positive and hopeful if you have to rely on people.  God is the only One who follows through on His Promises.  He promises good things for us and doesn’t discourage us when we are feeling down.   🙂

Happy thoughts come and go; 

It’s time to use the thoughts I know; 

To believe and hope in things I pray; 

And look toward Heaven right now and all day. 

God is Sovern – He has Supreme Authority over everything!  Remember, Jesus turned water into wine.  Give it up whatever is bothering you.

“The Lord has established His throne in the heavens; And His sovereignty rules over all.”  Psalm 103:19 (NASB)
